pctakachihoBorn and raised in the Chicagoland area, I grew up on a fairly consistent diet of superhero comics, action movies, video games, and TV shows. At the age of ten, I first began writing and I’ve never really stopped.

I’ve been working in publishing since 2005 in various capacities—author, editor, formatter, letterer—and I’ve written books, short stories, comics, and more. I has a Bachelor of Arts in English and Mass Media from Northeastern Illinois University and a Master of Arts in English and Screenwriting from Southern New Hampshire University. I currently live in Japan’s Kagoshima prefecture, where I work as a literature and writing instructor at the Minami Academy.

You can connect with me on Twitter at @PerConstantine, subscribe to my Facebook page, or follow me on Goodreads. I co-host The Geek Screen podcast with John Bracich, where we chat about geek-related movies and TV shows.
